B.E.S.T. and the Legg Mason Women’s Leadership Network Mentor Day 2016


February 17, 2016

On Wednesday, February 17th, 10 of our B.E.S.T. juniors and seniors participated in the Legg Mason Women’s Leadership Network Mentor Day.  This annual event hosted by Legg Mason brings together Samuel Ready Scholars (including B.E.S.T. and non-B.E.S.T. young women) and additional B.E.S.T. students for a day of mentorship, networking and meaningful engagement.  This year’s event began with a breakfast meet & greet, followed by an overview of Legg Mason and its Women’s Leadership Network. Next our young women received a course in Finance 101, followed by a waterfront lunch and learn.  The second half of the day focused on mock interviews, social media “DOs and DON’Ts”, and a service project.  Legg Mason truly treated our young women to an interactive and impactful day, and provided valuable lessons and tools as they head towards high school graduation, college and ultimately their careers.

Thank you, Legg Mason, for our partnership and your support of our students.
